Food Habits

Today’s food consumption patterns in Greece have moved away from the healthy food consumption patterns most Greeks followed until the mid 1960s. Reasons for this change are manifold and reach from globalization, industrial development, population growth, urbanization as well as climate change to a homogenization of lifestyles and an erosion of the Mediterranean diet cultural heritage. But health is not the only dimension affected by changing lifestyles. Unsustainable patterns of food production and consumption are closely interlinked with the degradation of the environment and the natural resources as well as serious social and economic problems.
